The knitting phenomenon takes a summer beach vacation in Paige's first book. Blurbed as "knits that melt onto your body" by Paige's archetype customer, Carmen Electra, Paige provides patterns for one teeny-tiny bikini after another, barely there in lush, full-color photos. Paige offers three chapters: the self-explanatory "Peace, Love & Bikinis;" "Sunshine, Good Vibes" with "Terry Short-shorts" and the "Little Mermaid Strapless Top;" and a collection of sexy evening and lounge wear like the "Sexpot Cami" in the "Cozy Homebodies" chapter. The drawbacks to Paige's approach are worth considering: "Some of the recommended yarns are not ocean-, pool-, or hot tub-proof," Paige advises. Sizes go no larger than about a women's 8, and knitters who have someone slim enough to qualify should keep in mind that Paige's definition of "sexy" almost always means lots of skin, with very little bits of strategically placed knitting. Beginners beware: there aren't any knitting how-tos here, just clearly laid out patterns accompanied by succinct knitting instructions. PHOTOS
